It’s been a funny weekend. A weekend of impromptu enforced house arrest. My daughter had come down with throat infection. She’s rarely ill but you would have thought it was the end of the world; she was so miserable.
So what is a person to do after making muesli bars, leek and potato soup and an apple cake but make a start on some Christmas presents.
My daughter was pleased with the pencil case I made her. It must have stood up to her peers’ standards as she requested a further one for her felt tips.
So all the younger members of the family are receiving these. I thought that one of these filled with some new felt tips and a matching purse with a little silver would be perfect for both the girls and boys of my friends and family.
These are the ones for the girls.
I came across this helpful tutorial for these pencil cases on Pinterest from the blog, Flossieteacakes.
I’m still after some appropriate fabric for boys. I looking for a fairly small print. Cars or monsters or action heros but not too young.
I’ve come across a few potentials but am not prepared to pay for postage for fabric from America. So if you come across anything please let me know.
Funnily enough my daughter did manage some cake.
Love, Lucie xx
